It's finally here...
the day you have been waiting for, oh-so-patiently. You may remember reading about it last year and thinking, will this day ever arrive?!
Now, I know I was not aware at that time that our lives would change so much by now. I had no idea that Peter would be somewhere over there right and had totally planned something different for this day, until the unaccompanied tour happened.
Since he is there, we are slightly limited in the celebrating that we can do. Therefore, I ask you to join in to help us make this day truly special for Peter. As you did last year (and he LOVED IT!!), please consider leaving a comment on the blog, sending him an email, a comment or DM on Facebook...whatever makes your heart happy.
Should you be working with him in the same general locale or know someone who knows someone who remembers meeting him, feel free to give a shout out. I know he will appreciate it!
Now, why all of the attention? Well, because....
Lordy, Lordy, Peter's 40!
Yep, the sweet little guy above is now an awesome 40 year old husband, dad, and all-around fab guy.
Here's to you, Pete. I'm sorry we can't be with you today, so hopefully you are dreaming of happy times with Coldstone Creamery Oreo ice cream cake, balloons, festivities that will make your little introverted heart explode with craziness. We wish we could be celebrating right along with you, but since we can't this will have to do for now. We love you and miss you, but know what you are doing is so very important and we will have the bestest party ever on your first R&R!
